Fantasy Fudge

I have decided that since we are approaching wedding/shower season, I would share some of my favorite recipes that we often serve at parties. A couple of weeks ago I posted an article about my Lemonade Punch. It has definitely become a staple at parties and showers at our house. Another one of our favorites is Fantasy Fudge.
